In 1964 Paul Cohen proved that if you assumed the Hypothesis was false, you did not contradict formal set theory either. And so he shows that in the context of set theory the Continuum Hypothesis is unprovable

In 1964 Paul Cohen proved that if you assumed the Hypothesis was false, you did not contradict formal set theory either. And so he shows that in the context of set theory the Continuum Hypothesis is unprovable. What is now the way forward? Cohen thinks that one day we will feel the Hypothesis is obviously false. He underlines the word "obviously". This means that set theory will have to be perfected, perhaps by adding a single simple axiom that is "obvious" and that results, as a consequence, in a proof that the Hypothesis is false

It states: The continuum hypothesis was advanced by Georg Cantor in 1878, and establishing its truth or falsehood is the first of Hilbert's 23 problems presented in 1900

Start by marking Set Theory and the Continuum Hypothesis as Want to Read: Want to Read savin. ant to Read. well i'm going to read this book again in the near future to get a more complete grasp on all the topics. i read it too slowly! school got in the way. still, though its only 150 pages this book contains an astounding amount of, uh, good theorems and shit. would like if it was typeset using LaTeX, but hey i'm.
